The theatre and the shows
The more than 100 year old theatre is a former cinema which could accommodate more than 1000 persons. Nowadays, the building has two theatres which could, summed up, accommodate more than 400 persons comfortably, but the building is more than just a venue for shows: "Escape Through The Movies" their escape room experience, brings the history of the Rozentheater as a cinema to life! The building also offers room for offices, studios and a beautiful bar at the entrance. Besides the regular shows, the building offers plenty of possibilities to rent the venue for your own event.
Boom Chicago is known for its quick and sharp comedy shows, featuring quick improvisation, video, music and much more! The international cast knows how to entertain every audience with their performances in which improvisation theatre is the key aspect.
For their 25th anniversary, Boom Chicago presents Bango!, a brand new comedy show and a brand new comedy style: New Form Improv with a Beat. Bango! is different each night. The show is based on true stories told by the actors, audience members and special guest stars which are never repeated. The musical energy comes from Sacha Hoedemaker who provides studio production, live music and funky drums. The cast adds lyrics to tell some stories musically. Catch Bango! every week from Wednesday through Saturday.
100 years ago the Rozentheater was Amsterdam’s first mega cinema, a 1000-seat movie palace with two balconies and a state-of-the-art projection booth. Now, Boom Chicago has turned this booth into the first scenario of Escape Through The Movies, an escape room experience in Amsterdam which takes you through different exciting rooms. Your journey will take you into the original operator's booth to start the projector and enter the movies. Why not combine Escape Through the Movies with the Boom Chicago comedy show?
